students, who have joined us to go on an exploration of religion. but what a journey it is. [ music ] [male voice:] so be it. [crowd:] so be it. [male voice:] tonight - [crowd:] tonight - [dr. simons:] this is armageddon, the field of armageddon. this is definitely not your father's oldsmobile. we're at the western wall, the last remaining wall of the second temple. we're at the san francisco zen center. it was the site of illinois greatest religious drama - the exodus of the mormons. this is the spot where jesus reputedly cried for jerusalem. [ music ] [male voice:] i'm not talking about god or buddha. [ music ] [female voice:] at the end of it, what is it for? for peace. [male voice:] you just discover it within our selves. [dr. simons:] we'll go through 24 classes in which we'll meet real believers from real religious settings and then we've added two new classes, the twenty fifth and the twenty sixth class back in the setting in which we'll discuss issues such as religion and violence, very much on people's minds. religion and science - new ways that science is helping us understand spi
on religion the way she feels about discussion and views on her sexual preference. i don't know why anybody has -- if anybody asked me what my religion is. one of the problems is people wearing religion on their sleeve in poll particulars, i was shocked to even know that. i don't know anybody's religion in congress. >> going back to the constitution we have freedom of religion and freedom of choice. i think it's great that she has -- >> i agree with you. >> thank you. she has that voice so we won't have people wearing the bible on their arm because as true christians you're not supposed to judge anyway. >> what about this, though, how can you campaign at church which a lot of politicians like to campaign which you don't belong to one. >> i think a lot of politicians a lot of different dab -- she's not been outside that community. if i'm not -- i think she went to bring ham young. >> she did. for her under grad. >> the university, right. i don't think she -- she mentioned in the interview her family church community helped them. doesn't sound like she's anti-because she has -- >> you can sen
it clear while we don't have jurisdiction over religion in the same way we don't over sexual orientation, what we're seeing in all of these -- and all of these are case by case, you can't just broad sweep the laws -- when students are bullied and harassed in this world because of religion, in most instances a lot of that is not about race or religion, it's because. perception that students that share certain religious traits also share certain ethnicities and that is discrimination and that falls under title 6. it is not just about enforcing the laws that make it clear how the laws apply. it is, though, as we said, you can't get at this through enforcement alone. this is a culture that tolerates this and in too many ways promotes it. as tom mentioned we have an unprecedented partnership not just between our agencies but agencies across the federal government that the president has convened to bring our best resources and minds to bear to do something about it. there is now a web site, stopbullying.gov where a tool kit is being developed and these kinds of best practices g really about
religion, but particularly islam, there's not always a clear understanding to what the first amendment guarantees, which is the right to teach about a religion but not proselytize about it. i think there's fear of associating with anyone associated with islam. there are events outside our control that creates more interest and unfortunately also makes people more afraid. one of the programs we are about to launch is putting all our content online so a teacher in north dakota where there are no muslim, potentially, no expert can come to her classroom, they can go to our web site and download the content and teach the things we are teaching. >> i think partnerships are the best way to overcome the limitations because we all have limitations. and sometimes it's just visibility. we actually have on our web site 50 short films and one of them is a muslim student from a school in fremont going to a school in arinda talking about what it's like going to school as a muslim in the united states and they are asking questions and you see we are all kids in school and we have more similaritie
and god. >> obama is at war with all religion in any public place, any public square any public school. >> jon: first of all it's nice to know that roy rogers wife is still out there. [ laughter ] second of all, how would an avowed anti-gun secularist celebrate this momentum victory? -- momentous victory if. ♪-- victory? >> freedom is say gift from god. >> god bless these united states. >> in jesus name and the name of all that is holy. >> let us join together in prayer. >> let us pray heavenly father. >> jesus christ, my lord and savior. >> may god bless you all. >> we pray for your blessing. >> l'chaim. >> jon: who let that guy in there? a l ls a l l[cheers and applaus] >> jon: welcome back. barack obama first inauguration in 2009, his inauguration was an historic event. how did yesterday's compare to someone who has been to sphwhoaj john oliver reports. >> four years ago two million people were on the national mall to witness the historic inauguration of barack obama. and i was there. yes! and now four years later, i had returned. i'm right back here in exactly the same spot as la
of religious beliefs. so why would you choose scientology? perhaps the most stigmatized religion in this country. >> what do you think it does for people? that's the thing i can't get to the bottom of. what does it give people? >> at the beginning level when you go in and get auditing which is their form of therapy, a lot of people feel like they are helped. that's what draws people in. they ask what is ruining your life? what is your ruin? if you say, well, it's my relationship or my profession or something, they say we have something that can help you. and sometimes that's true. >> is recruiting celebrities -- they have this celebrity center in hollywood. was that a conscious effort by the church and is that for pr reasons? >> absolutely. these are product endorsements. the church of scientology was created in los angeles. the celebrity center in hollywood, all of it with the design to take over the entertainment industry. there were people that they were actively recruiting. they were always looking for that efigure that would be a prominent member of the entertainment industr
, regardless of culture, country, gender, race, or even religion, certain mathematical principles remain true. for example, 100 can always be reduced to its basic building blocks of 2's and 5's no matter what language it is that we speak every day. mathematics is indeed a language common to all of us on planet earth, and the most fundamental letters of its alphabet are called "the primes." these numbers have the very unique quality of being divisible by only themselves and one. they can't be factored any further, and as a result, they're often called the "atoms of arithmetic." prime numbers are so fundamental and mysterious that they've intrigued human mathematicians for thousands of years. are they so fundamental that other intelligent beings in the universe might know about them, too? in the 1960s, seti suggested that if there are other intelligent beings out there, they might share the language of mathematics with us. seti relied on the idea that math is so fundamental to how we describe the physical universe that other beings might see the universe through the same lens. and if we shared
with a person of another race or religion. and then i had another trial after this was done in another jurisdiction that shall go unnamed, and i would say there were maybe 5 percent of the jurors, potential jurors, who had had meaningful contact with a person of a different race or ethnicity and that's really what this is about. one of my least favorite words is the word tolerance because, you know, i tolerate brussel sprouts but if you simply tolerate the diversity that is america, you are going to, you are aspiring for mediocrity. when we have, and this gets back to your question, when we have leaders that embrace diversity and that build a culture that says, you know what, if you want to compete in the global economy tomorrow, pal, you've got to embrace diversity. why does coca-cola write a brief to the united states supreme court and general motors and microsoft on issues of diversity and higher education? because they know if they want to get ahead, they've got to embrace that diversity. if they want to continue to be a fortunes 50 company, there's got to embrace diversity. si
take out representatives of the 5 major religions and do the same thing and we model in front of high school and middle school students how the faiths can sit down like we are sitting here today and have conversations about our commonalities but about our differences as well. many of the comments we get from students is, wow, you guys can sit up there and talk because most of the pictures our students see are the ones that have been playing across our screens the last 2 or 3 days. we hope by challenging that we can prevent bullying and harassment we've been seeing here today. >> thank you, amina stacy is manager of communications for the los angeles giants. >> if you think about what our mission is, you probably think our mission is to win the world series every year, which hopefully this year we're on the right track, but actually our mission statement, we just went through an exercise but our mission statement has always been to enrich the community through innovation. and it's very, i am very proud of the fact that the giants have been able to take that mission and bring it into
matters of religion and birth and marriage and it was thought by ben gurren that these people who were already small in number and fairly isolated would eventually play themselves out. the early secular zionists thought the ultra-orttext would kind of die out. ey didn't. they have lots of babies and their families grow and grow, and, "therefore, their proportion is larger. they don't serve in the military. they get enormous subsidies so that their kids can just study and not entertain mainstream of society. and main stream israeli society-- not just secular society-- is tired of that. they're tired of footing the bill. they're tired of seeing their kids serve in the military and not their kids. and yair lapid exemplifies it. >> rose: dennis, weigh in now having listened to both of them, and you've spent as much time as anybody i know representing the united states in the region. >> i agree with pretty much both what david and port said. let me just add a couple of point, one picking up on the last theme of sharing the burden. you you know, there is a joke that has gone around israel fo
and naive. the guy who is devoting a life to family and religion. golden boy of sports. he will be a first round draft pick and get multimillion dollar deal and hopefully a real girlfriend. i think he will be forgiven. >> eric: real girlfriend. >> kimberly: well, this wasn't a real girlfriend. >> eric: i got you. bob? >> bob: i find it amazing how crushed his world was that his girlfriend died who he never met. number one. number two, what would you do, katie? i don't nope, maybe tell the truth. but that is assuming that you believe him. that he learned two days before december 6. i said from the beginning and i'll say it now, his father was worse by the way. he said i have known the i go 21 years of his life. that is his whole life, dad. he is your son. but the fact of the matter is that this guy was setting himself up for the heisman trophy and going to be a close vote. that's why he went along with the deal. >> eric: i'm not sure we set it up properly. what he did is say i found out sometime between december and january when they had the national championship game and he didn't say anyt
. we're not children who need to be parented or misguided, bitter clingers to guns and religion. we believe in our right to defend ourselves and our families with semiautomatic firearms technology. we believe that if neither the criminal nor the political class and their bodyguards and security people are limited by magazine capacity, we shouldn't be limited in our capacity either. >> you know, mayor, your thoughts. he is basically saying we got to arm people or allow them to be armed up to the armed power of the united states government. this is really something. this is about posse comitatus. this isn't about sportsmanship or about self-protection, it's about insurrection. it's about fighting the revenuers again. >> and he is totally misleading his people. he knows that anyone who works for the government in any capacity with the firearm is severely reviewed before they're allowed to touch a firearm. they are required to be skillful. they are required to report in. they are required to be held accountable for every use of that firearm, something that this man obviously would oppos

that differentiate us, make us unique, whether it be gender or race or religion, all of these things fall aside when you're there putting the mission first and selflessly serving as that member of a team. i can tell you from my own fi t firsthand experience as well as the many, many people i've had the honor of serving with, whether in training or in a deployed setting, those things are not what's crossing your mind when you're operating. >> should there be jobs that are not open to women? i mean are there some positions that really women cannot do? >> i don't think so. i think that really you have to look at what are the qualifications, what are the standards necessary for a specific job that are already in place and opening those doors to anyone who has volunteered to serve our country, if they meet those standards, that should be the setting. i think we've heard from john mccain, for example. his concern about making sure that the high physical fitness standards are kept, and i agree. i think in some of these jobs that do require a great amount of physical fitness, those standards should not be
to the lds church and what challenges it poses when they are picking a college. we knew his religion was extremely important to him. he seemed like a very nice guy, like a very thoughtful guy. that continued through college and i followed this story as well and was at the heisman ceremony when he was talking about this stuff when apparently he had already been told it was a hoax. it's just really weird and raises a lot of questions. >> manti te'o, gail, released some of the voice mails that he said came from this person that he believed to be lennay, the girlfriend online. let me play a clip. >> hi, i'm just telling you know i got here and i'm getting ready for my first session and just want to call you to keep you posted. i miss you. i love you. bye. babe, i'm just calling to say good night. i love you. i know that you're probably doing homework or you're with the boys or i want to say i love you and good night. i'll be okay tonight. i'll do my best. yeah. so get your rest and i'll talk to you tomorrow. i love you so much, hun. sweet dreams. i don't know who answered your phone and
things that differentiate us and make us unique whether gender or race or religion, all of these things fall aside when you are there putting the mission first and selflessly serving as that member of a team. i can tell you from my my first hand experience that whether in training or deployed setting those things are not what's crossing your mind when you are operating. >> but make no mistake when she talked about gender there, what women will have to do to join these front line units is pass the same standards of physical fitness, scholastic, it will all have to be the same as the men. this will be gender neutral. >> do we know how quickly this will happen? >> the pentagon says they want to have an implementation process and get it done by 2016. there is still a big outclause on all of this. the services, military units could say at the end of the day they want an exemption and they don't think they can have women in the units. you hear the same issues, personal hygiene, can women pass the physical requirements, all of this still on the table. so panetta knows and chuck hagel was suppo

[applause] and what that means is this asian person with this asian face don't have to go to nevada and into new mexico and texas and speak spanish, because we already got some folks already part of this thing. and i just want to say to my friend lynn -- linda chavez, when we were campaigning the very first, thank you for letting me serenade you when i was first running. because without that ability to serenade you, i don't think anybody would have known who that asian guy was.

about their religion and their gods? we have they warfare going on around this country. we are talking about gun control. if i want to see somebody taken now, why do have to go inside a school? guest: i want to thank the caller for his service in vietnam. this is one of the big shifts in its war effort than i write about in my book. the major philosophy for insurgents was socialism, communism, often allied with nationalism. that change in 1979 we saw the rise of jihadism as the dominant force driving terrorism around the world. he saw that with the takeover of the embassy in iran. he saw that with the soviet invasion of afghanistan. you saw all those things coming together in a way that empowered jihadists. tendency to saya tennesse that they are fanatical. the history suggests otherwise. and proper strategy that we implemented in iraq which focused on security and tries to provide some of the legitimate needs of the people who want economic growth and jobs and freedom. a strategy like that can be successful. we saw that in the surge in iraq. do not lose heart. the reality is most insu
of religion, what are these but the recognition that at times when the majority of men would willingly destroy him, a descending man may have no friend but the law. this power given to the minority is the most sophisticated and the most vital power bestowed by our constitution. "he was not willing to end a grave injustice which the civil rights legislation would have achieved by a method that he felt ran roughshod over the rights of the minority. and he warned us against the attempts, in his words, to destroy the power of the minority in the name of another minority. mike mansfield, leader of the senate, supporting a modification in the rule to reduce the number of senators needed to end debate from 67 to 60, although he supported the change in the rules, opposed the use of the nuclear option or the constitutional option to achieve it. and this is what mike mansfield said. arguing for the reform, he said -- quote -- "the urgency or even wisdom of adopting the 3/5 resolution does not justify a path of destruction for the senate as an institution and its vital importance to our scheme of gover
and hijacking of an old and honored religion and what we need to do is find a way -- and this is something we have to work at -- for people to understand the degree to which that is happening and becoming in some places an excuse for their disenfranchisement, of being deprived of good can governance, jobs, opportunity and one of our missions is to not let that be an excuse. so i think that carrying the banner of religious tolerance, of diversity and pluralism is critical. we have raised that with president morsi. i think i was the first american to meet with the president before he even knew he was a candidate. and we talked about the need for the brotherhood to be able to respect the diversity of egypt. now that hasn't happened completely as we would like in the constitutional process. but as i said, that's an ongoing process and we need to work together to try to do it. but senator, you raise a central, central issue with respect to what is happening to the politics of certain regions of the world. and it's got to be front and center in our dialogue. >> thank you. >> senator corker, final c
